I am Susan. This space holds my own ponderings and observations.
Other than a very long, slightly boring (yet completed with an immense sense of pride) doctoral dissertation on a completely unrelated topic to this blog, I have no other published works. My professional life recently came to a screeching halt due to chronic illness, but this does not define me.
Unlike the mid 80s classic movie with a similar title, this Susan is not seeking to escape her life, nor live someone else’s, I am simply is trying to constantly make sense of it. Proverbs 3:13 says “Blessed are those who find wisdom, those who gain understanding,” Sagacity is the quality of being wise or having good judgment. I am a Christ-follower who is perpetually seeking sagacity - in both her spiritual and not-so-down-to earthly life.
When not absorbed in a gripping page-turner, I enjoy spending time with my family, beach dwelling, listening to 80s alternative rock music, and otherwise spending far too much time at the computer. I have two (mostly grown and flown) adult male offspring. I live in North Carolina, with my husband and way too many pets. This blog centers around various subjects, including Faith, Chronic Illness, Marriage/Family, Silliness & Spunk, and of course seeking spiritual sagacity. Whether you agree with me and my random perspectives regarding what I write about, or not, I do hope you will join me for the journey as I explore and seek meaning and purpose amongst everyday things on this journey towards sagacity.
If you enjoy what you find here, please consider downloading the RSS feed, if that even still exists and if I’ve figured out how to add it, you will find the little icon thingy under the Desperately Seeking Sagacity Blog tab. Otherwise, feel free to send me (via comments or email) any feedback, suggestions, encouragement, or random birthday gifts (June 28).
